Byron welcomes back Special Olympics basketball state champions

ROCKFORD, Ill (WIFR)--- A crowd filled with relatives, classmates and a lot of cheer welcomed the Byron high school's Special Olympics basketball team.

The team took home the state titled with a final score of 40 to 20. Team member Austin Henry says it was all made possible through hard work and determination.
